went for a quick cast in the south branch today for a couple of hours got 4 all round 4 lb awsome condition all came up for cicadas it was fantastic to see13/03/2011 at 9:07 pm #17974
Fished the Hokitika river while we were over there for Wildfoods, only spent half an hour fishing but hooked 3 fish landed one. Sizes ranging from 20cm to close to 3lb. Was stoked considering all I’ve heard about the lower reaches of the Hokitika is that it wasn’t a good area for sea runs…15/03/2011 at 5:27 am #17991

Cheers mulletman I hope the vids are a help although the glowbugs work best during winter..March at lyndon is absolutely deadly with either a small lumo doll fly or a red fuzzy wuzzy fished along the edges..10+ fish a night is common provided there is NO moon..will be heading out myself when conditions suit!!27/03/2011 at 2:44 am #18108

Cought a nice rainbow trout out at Lake opuha (South Canterbury) this morning was just under 3lb in good condition.12/04/2011 at 10:13 pm #18154
Had a day at lake Georgina yesterday, I must say that I’m really dissapointed with the results of Fish and Games stocking programme. There seems to be no limit to the amount of fish thrown into some of our lakes with the result being hundreds of 1lb fish with next to nothing over 2lbs. Please reduce the numbers so the fish can get bigger or perhaps increase the limit bag on lakes such as Georgina,Lyndon and Pearson…the fishing “experience” is really starting to suffer imo http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl … QS12UfaMRI for yesterdays action.15/04/2011 at 7:47 pm #18161
I spent an hour or so on a stream near chch today, here’s some footage http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ1Ya2HC … rofilepage16/04/2011 at 1:02 am #18162baitmanParticipant
good clips kevo. How deep do you think georgina is always look shallow to me but I haven’y fished it much. What are you using to film with? I’ve been looking at some little cams on TM the sort you strap to a bike that take sd camera cards (work in progress)…..
Heaps of little buggers in that one pool eh could you see them?16/04/2011 at 7:53 am #18168
Hey mate, I could see them at times when they moved in close but normally just blind fishing, Georgina would max out at about 6-7 feet I’d say and most of the time you can easily see the bottom..as for my camera it’s just my panasonic handycam that I have cruedly attached to an old cap.I have also added a chin strap which prevents it from falling off..the whole system works a treat although it looks mighty weird!!
